In addition, individual lexical items are eventually related into more general constructions, as we will see later. In other words, these personal nullsubject constructions lie at the extreme end of specificity of reference. If we make the very conservative assumption that these three constructions are independent, we find an average category validity of 0.33 for constructions. To examine children’s use of syntactic information, two constructions in which there is a conflict between the referential and syntactic information were included. As the authors show, there is considerable systeminternal motivation for treating many verb-particle constructions as grammatical units. According to the form-based criteria of a traditional account, these constructions are not passives. All three constructions are treated as long distance dependencies triggered by a gap or a clitic (section 6n1). The filler sentences made use of different kinds of syntactic constructions. Constructions also specify linking relations for combination with other constructions in their semantic structures. One only has to think of the well-known unnaturalness of logical ‘ or ‘ and ‘ if – then ‘ constructions. On the other hand, the nouns in such constructions have many of them. Minor register variation patterns are introduced by variation in equational and copula verb constructions, and by avoidance of some of the case variables. Progress in this direction will be made once the semantics of given constructions are more carefully studied.
